Evergreene Digest: Dennis Kucinich Blasts Congress For Lack Of War Vote

President Barack Obama had little trouble convincing Congress — even Republicans who usually fight tooth and nail against his policies — to go along with his plan to arm Syrian rebels fighting Islamic State militants. He has also encountered little resistance to his campaign of airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, with leaders from both parties praising his course of action.

But some of the silence is due to the fact that in 2012, Congress lost its loudest anti-war voice: Dennis Kucinich. In an interview with The Huffington Post, Kucinich was incredulous that Congress would allow the president to essentially go to war without insisting on a vote to authorize it.
